erasmus mundusUp to 20 full 2-year grants worth up to EUR 49000 each (fees, travel, & subsistence) are available per year for students to pursue a unique Joint Master programme, the Erasmus Mundus Joint Msc in Advanced Systems Dependability (DEPEND), offered by Maynooth University in Ireland, the University of St. Andrews in Scotland (UK), and the Université de Lorraine in Nancy (France), and funded by the European Erasmus+ EMJMD Programme.  

As software systems become an ever more important part of everyday life, the dependability of systems is becoming ever more critical.

Students attend two of the three universities during the course, spending one year at each. Annual summer schools are an important element of the course, and these take place at a different university each year. On successful completion of the course, students are awarded a Joint M.Sc. degree by a consortium of the three universities; the course is accredited in all three countries.

The DEPEND programme is intended for a small number of highly-qualified, highly-motivated international students. Entry is competitive, and in order to maintain a good professor/student ratio, up to 25 students will be selected for entry to the course each year.

Courses are taught through English only. 
The admission criteria are:

A high honours degree in Computer Science, or a very closely related discipline (with a grade equivalent to at least II.1, B, or assez bien)
Non-native speakers of English must provide proof of an acceptable knowledge of English (for example, IELTS of at least 6.5, or equivalent)

The application deadline (for scholarships) of 8th March 2019, and for non-scholarship applications of 1st June 2019.
